Paul Brooking is a London based photographer with many years experience working on advertising and design campaigns.  He has received numerous awards and his work has been exhibited widely at venues such as the Royal Academy, the National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Photographic Society, the Association of Photographers and his solo show, 'Tomorrow People' at the London School of Economics.

Originally, he trained under his father Alan Brooking, a pioneer advertising photographer from the Sixties famous for Saatchi’s ‘Pregnant Man’ and Bartle Bogle Hegarty’s ‘Black Sheep’, before embarking on his own career and developing his personal photographic style.

Paul’s work spans beyond photography to include graphic design, product design, music composition and directing short films. Clients have included BBC, Channel 4, The Dorchester, The Lanesborough, Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir, Aquascutum, Levi’s, Sony Music and The Arts Council.

His personal photographic projects, inspired by the Twentieth Century American realist painter Edward Hopper, explore subtle emotions and interplay between characters to create a cinematic narrative within a still image.
